That'll be something.

I think Kuz would be better ball'n with DS on the floor. He's trying too hard to accommodate Lebron style. Let him free flow coming off the bench I think he could be a 6th man candidate.

Kuz being in the last year of his deal is why imo lakers should trade him. Also, he's still a bit of an unknown and if we can get a player like Oubre (along with his bird rights) - I think it'll be a good upgrade.

We already know Oubre is pretty good with untapped potential and is same age as Kuzma.

I don't mind getting Oubre. I'd take another live body in the paint. Not sure if LJ would approve . I remember Oubre open hand slapping him in a game. 😂

They have practiced together in the off-season before. Lebron wanted Rondo on the team and is friends with Draymond. I wouldn't worry about that.
Hopefully they can bring back dwight and McGee opts out.

If you're on a s**tty team you should be trying to get in big time players heads. Legends don't hold grudges (for the most part) with guys like Oubre. If you are good then they want you. See Kobe with Ron artest/rondo/ Matt Barnes etc

With Dwight likely gone and Javale gone honestly we may need a big body up front more, so ya. Makes sense. And the knicks with their pick last night have 7 power forwards lol

I'll be very surprised by this. Randle is making 19m this season. This move will mean that Lakers will not be able to use either exceptions. Mid level is 9.3M (but will hard cap the lakers at 138.8m) and bi-annual exception (just above 3m).

...and we def. need a wing defender.
